Atlantic Airways is the national airline of the Faroe Islands, operating international passengers services from its headquarters at Vagar Airport.


Atlantic Airways flies to the following destinations including Vagar, Reykjavik, Mallorca, Gran Canaria, Edinburgh, Copenhagen, Chania, Billund, Bergen, Barcelona and Aalborg. Atlantic Airways also operates charters for Danish tour operators to destinations such as Italy, Croatia, France, Scotland, Norway and the Czech republic, out of Copenhagen Kastrup and Billund airports.


The airline was established in 1987 and 1988 Faroese people were able for the first time to fly from Vagar to Copenhagen with their new Faroese airline company. Since 1997, Atlantic Airways have been flying to Aarhus and Billund in Denmark.


Atlantic Airways’ network consists of the NORTH routes, the Denmark routes and the SUN routes, the latter being very well received with many passengers choosing to fly directly from the Faroes to sun and summer in southern climes.


In 2007, Atlantic Airways was listed on the Iceland Stock Exchange.



“The Faroe Islands are more accessible and more affordable than ever before. Atlantic Airways serves a record number of destinations and the fact that SAS has entered the marked with their route between Copenhagen, has opened the marked and has attracted the attention of the foreign eye. Furthermore, there is an increase of domestic demand,” said Jákup Sverri Kass, CEO at Vagar Airport - International Airport Review

UK's Atlantic Airlines Announce their top 20 alternative destinations

Atlantic Airways have gone down our alternative way of travelling, making a list of their top 20 alternative destinations and offering customers a chance to win a trip of a life time to one of these of their choice. All of their destinations are rated out of 5 for "alternativeness". The destinations that get 5 altenative stars are:

1. Kyiv & Chernobyl: a destination that feeds off humanities obsession with dark tourism, this tour offers you the chance to explore the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant exclusion zone for two full days, incliuding a stay in a hotel built for scientific advisors.

2. World Nomad Games, Kyrgyzstan: epic, well worth trip if you're getting bored of the olympics. I mean throwing a goats head around on horseback or cycling in a circle- i know which one I'd rather watch. 

3. 17 WHOLE DAYS in North Korea: this has got to be one of the longest North Korean tours on the market. God knows what you'll see for your £3250

UK's Atlantic Airlines switches main hub to East Midlands

West Atlantic UK Ltd, the UK division of European cargo operator West Atlantic Group, has relocated its main operational hub from Coventry Airport to East Midlands Airport.

The freight specialist said in a statement the move was driven by a need to find increased space to accommodate its Atlantic Airlines (UK) (NPT, Coventry) unit's growing fleet of B737 freighters (six B737-300(F)s and ten B737-400(F)s) and the fact that many of West Atlantic’s customers are based at East Midlands Airport.

"We had outgrown our Coventry facility as it could no longer meet the demands and needs of our business," Nigel Hiorns, Managing Director for West Atlantic UK Ltd, said. "A new base is required due to the rapid expansion of our fleet, and our in-house maintenance capabilities especially as we prepare to launch new converted B737-800 freighters in February 2018.”

As such, the firm said it has leased 4,000 sqm of hangar space at the Leicestershire airport to be closer to its key customers, DHL Express and Royal Mail. 

West Atlantic also offers aircraft maintenance services and aircraft leasing which will benefit other cargo operators that are located at East Midlands Airport.
